    Sounds like he could do with using a Standalone piece of encoding software that would pick the audio up from Zara and stream it out to a shoutcast/icecast server.

    Although why he wants to use Zararadio when there are better pieces of automation out there is beyond me.

    Scheduling and using .seq files. in Zara Radio


    Some people are having problems setting up .seq files and how they can be used effectively within Zara
    What I wanted to do was have a small bio, eg “This is the story of ….....” and play a prerecorded file of that artist, and the next time the bio is played then another file would play of that artist. I use this system, and it has proved very reliable,


    The example below is for one artist only, you can create as many artist set ups as you like
    OK....here's what you do..


    Create a new file on your C: drive, call it Bio-Songs
    In bio songs, create a sub folder called Alan Jackson Songs
    Place into Alan Jackson Songs, 10 song files of Alan Jackson.
    Again in Bio-Songs, create another folder and call that Alan Jackson bio Information
    Record your bio information, and save it to Alan Jackson bio Information.


    Next
    Open Zara and go file>new
    from your left column in Zara, locate Alan Jackson bio Information, and inset that file into the playlist area.
    Then from the playlist column (top of page) insert random song and insert Alan Jackson Songs
    Now save those two files (now in the playlist area) as Alan Jackson final . making sure they are saved as .seq file and is saved into the Bio-Songs(main folder)


    Next
    Open up your events, select a time or whatever time you wish that file to be played, and insert Alan Jackson final seq. and save.


    Now on the Zara front page, when that time comes around, the file will play, and every time the files is played, it will play the Alan
    Jackson bio Information file
    first followed by the next track in the Alan Jackson Songs file.


    Hope this helps guys
